"I love getting my kids together, all four of them and their partners," he told fans on an Instagram Live, before confessing: "Funny enough the 18-year-old who lives in this house somewhere, we're not sure where, he keeps odd hours, goes to bed in the early hours of the morning and then gets up in the early hours of the afternoon.

"But apparently he has his little room where he's 'studying' above the garage but I never see him until we have a family conference on zoom and then he pops up and then I remember he lives in the house with us."
